Pisces Man Silent Treatment – What Does it Mean?

There are some valid reasons why a Pisces man would ignore you. Pisces man gone silent makes you pause. What happened? What did you do and how can you fix it? Pisces silent treatment happens for a reason.

There are solutions! It’s alright if you aren’t Merlin the magician. Just be yourself with a few little tweaks. Decode him right now so keep reading to learn what it means when a Pisces man ignores you. The Pisces man silent treatment isn’t fun in the least.

Hasn’t Fully Opened Up To You Yet

One of the biggest reasons a Pisces man would ignore you or pull back which makes him seem as though he’s blowing you off is when he isn’t really ready to talk to you about his personal life.

This would mean that he has things going on in his world that he isn’t going to talk about quite yet. If he’s not fully comfortable with you, he’s going to be a Pisces man gone silent.

This doesn’t always mean he’s upset with you either. He could be totally disturbed by other things going on in his life and he doesn’t know how to cope with it so he just shuts down. Pisces silent treatment becomes common.

Pisces man silent treatment will accompany a shut down from everyone. He will go home and stay there or in his room and lock himself up for a day or two so that he can gather his thoughts or feelings about what is going on.

Sometimes he’s overloaded with feelings from other people as well. Remember that he’s an empathetic guy and often picks up on other people’s emotions or energies which blend with his and make things very confusing.

When the Pisces man is totally comfortable with you and feels he can trust you, he may be more able to tell you when things are “off” in his life and when he just needs a little down time to recover.

You Pissed Him off or Hurt Him

What Does It Mean When a Pisces Man Ignores You - pisces man ignoring me after argument

Clearly if you hurt the Pisces man’s feelings or do something that really pisses him off then yes, he will withdraw and possibly give you the silent treatment. It’s not right and it’s not mature but he’s a feeler. He operates on his knee jerk reactions.

He has to learn how to open up and communicate properly instead of shutting himself down. He doesn’t realize that problems will not get solved if he doesn’t actually express what he’s upset about. When a Pisces man goes quiet, it’s an issue.

How can you fix anything if you don’t know what it is that you did wrong or what you did that hurt him? When you notice Pisces man silent treatment you can help by perhaps letting him know that you’re actually concerned, he’ll remember that he really should actually tell you what he’s feeling. This will alleviate confusion and possibly make him come back around quicker.

If he’s a young Pisces man, he’s going to have even more difficulty understanding how to open up and communicate. He hasn’t developed the skills to talk things through yet and responds only to his feelings.

The more mature he becomes, the more he begins to realize through experience that it’s often better to speak up instead of holding it in. The older Pisces man may actually say too much at times.

Certainly if you said something that really ticked him off or said something that got to him on a deep emotional level, he will possibly not know how to respond and instead Pisces man goes quiet.

Again, reach out to him and let him know that you are sorry that you hurt him or ticked him off. Ask what it was in specific and try to understand the Pisces man gone silent.

So when you ask yourself “Pisces man ignoring me is happening, what do I do?”. Remember that the Pisces man silent treatment is something he’s very used to doing. 

May Feel Smothered or Overwhelmed

Pisces Man Feeling Smothered or Overwhelmed

The Pisces man loves lots of attention and affection but he has limits. Pisces man gone silent?  There are some reasons you probably need to be aware of so that you can avoid it.

He can become too intertwined with his partner which causes him to be off kilter and can lead to depression. In fact, Pisces men are prone to mental illness and addiction. When Pisces man goes quiet, it means they should really learn coping skills when it comes to letting their emotions out.

If you really watch for the signs, you can just about tell when your Pisces guy is near a breaking point. When a Pisces goes silent, something is definitely up with him.

He will also start reacting if you’re spending too much time together. Even if he loves you, at some point his emotions become overwhelmed and he will want some time by himself.

It’s alright to let him have some free time and space. He won’t leave. In fact he’ll really appreciate it if you let him have time on his own. It’s ideal for you to make your own plans away from him once in a while.

I’m not saying this has to happen often but I’d say at least once a week would be something that allows him to be himself, be by himself, and figure it out when a Pisces goes silent.

If you don’t allow him to have this time and space, he will start to resent you and that upset will build until he takes the time he wants without your say so. He will just go dead quiet and you’ll have a hard time getting him to respond.

The best thing is to always be up front with him about your feelings and ask him about his. He may be afraid to tell you that he needs space or that he has some issues going on in his life.

When you open up to him and ask him to do the same, he may actually get comfortable then this disappearing thing may happen substantially less if at all. Give it a chance and be an open book with him.

Final Thoughts On Pisces Silence Treatment

When a Pisces goes quiet, it’s because he needs to really contemplate things and review everything in order to get a feel on what he can or will do. It will greatly depend on how you respond to him.

Always give him a bit of space but still effectively show you care by trying to find middle ground so that incidents like this don’t happen more.  The Pisces man silent treatment can really suck but it doesn’t have to for the long haul.

Remember, he is still a ma first and foremost. Who knows what he has on his platter at any given time. Be there for him and be sure that you’re letting him know you’re not going to abandon him even if he does get upset.

Also when a Pisces goes silent, inspire him to talk about what he feels or at least being honest with you about him feeling unsettled no matter what it is. Pisces man gone silent is unnerving and makes you wonder if you’ll ever get through.

  1. I met my Picses man about 6 months ago. We dated on and off for the first few weeks. He has communication issues so I broke it off a couple of times. We were only apart maybe a week or so in between times. We just could stay away from each other. We had a really strong connection. When we got back together the last time we decided to committed ourselves to each other. He told me he loved me and had loved me for a while and thought we were meant to be together. We were really happy. He was staying with me at my home and everything was going great until a family issue tore him away. His life was turned upside down and now he’s having to raise 2 of his grand children. We talked about us and he said that he loved me and would miss me but he had no idea if he was even going to have time for a social life. The situation is very complicated . He was barely talking to me. We were apart for almost 2 months and he finally had a free weekend. He called me and came and spent the weekend with me. We had a great time together. He told me how much he missed me and that he loved me multiple times. He was so loving and sweet. But before the next week was over he has stopped talking to me again. He is the most confusing, selfish and cruel man I have ever met. I think he is a liar and a cheater. He has hurt me more than any man has. I’m so heartbroken I don’t think I’ll ever trust what another man says to me again.. it has been 10 days since he last texted me. He just walked away with no explanation. Ghosted me like I never meant anything to him. I treated him like a king. I’m a Cancer woman so he never had to wonder how I felt about him. I was very loving and affectionate and always told him how I felt. Why would he treat me this way?

    1. I’ve dealt with one as well, only short turn. I believe they’re mentally unstable and quite unusual men. He brought an older woman to church with him as they sat together a few times with his arm around her. Our friend says, “Oh Timothy, I see you’ve found yourself a wife.” His reply was, she’s my mother’s age; old enough to be my mother!”

      1. Hi Sadie!

        Ouch that’s not a very nice thing for him to say about that woman he has his arm around. He must have already made it clear to her that he’s not interested in being more than friends with benefits perhaps? It’s possible. Pisces men like to play until they find “the one”.

    2. Hi Michelle!

      He could be a cheater and a liar or he could be telling the truth. If he is telling the truth it’s because Pisces men are not very well equipped with dealing with hard situations especially when it has to do with family. He is not a multi-faceted person who can deal with love, work, family, etc all at once. He’s not balanced and this is why Pisces men turn to substance or addiction sometimes. I’m sorry you feel heartbroken but you should ask him for the truth flat out and see what he says. That way you can get closure if needed.

  2. Well I’m sorry that happened because I was talking to this pieces man for about 1 year but 5 or 6 months into our friend ship there were things I still didn’t know about him he would come over line once twice a week he would invite me out for dinner like before he would go into work. Finally like the next 6 months I was invited over to his place it took him that long to invite me over his ever we had fire chemistry from the first time he laid his eyes on me he told me he was chemistry at first site so we still talk to this day but I haven’t seen or heard from him he won’t answer my txt messages or oh hbd calls when I’ve always been the one to give his space so with all the txt messages that I sent him every day I’m hoping I haven’t made matters worse because I know he will shut down but it’s been tough not hearing from him today is Valentine’s Day and I haven’t heard from him it’s been really tough but I go on

    1. Hi Shi!

      I’m sorry to hear you tangled with the wrong Pisces man. If a Pisces man doesn’t move mountains to spend time with you then he’s not into you no matter what he says. His actions will often speak much louder than his words. The right Pisces guy will embrace you and do anything he can for you. He sure as heck wouldn’t treat you the way that one did.

  3. My Pisces boyfriend and I are not talking now, which isn’t anything new. This last time we got into an argument, sort of, he left off by saying that I’ll go into silence, like I’ll be the one who goes into silent mode. But I was directly telling him that I don’t have a problem and I don’t feel the need to do that, but he kept saying I’ll go into being quiet. I kept asking him why would he say that, but of course he said nothing more and stopped talking to me. He has this terrible habit of critiquing me, judging, telling me what he doesn’t like about me, what I need to change, and so on. But as soon as I tell him the same back of what I dislike about him, he shuts down, turn the entire conversation around, and make it seem like something is my fault, basically he likes to say it but can’t take it when it’s done to him. What I think our argument was about this time is the fact that now he has 2 jobs and is getting back on his feet and where he wants to be, so now he feels as if everybody else from before when he was down will bring him back down. That he has to purge all the people who aren’t thinking and doing to his standards aren’t good enough, including me. My current situation is that I am looking for my first job in the health care field, he’s into technology and think I should be looking into that instead. But I told him I don’t mind working my way up, even though my job at first will be very little, but it’s still in the healthcare field and that’s what matters to me. He said that I’m being simple minded and not thinking bigger or outside of the box. But I’m sure the problem is because I’m not thinking like him and agreeing with him. And besides the argument, I’ve told him that I have experienced being ghosted, neglected, and ignored in other relationships before, and he’s using this against me because he knows it bothers me. It’s like his way of mentally punishing me to tear me down. But I’m older and more mature, and to be honest he’s the most emotional man I have ever dated, so this stuff is kind of annoying to me now. I think now I’m not the point where I am tired of the critiques, his emotions, and him thinking he knows everything. I do love him, but I’m done with shutting up and just taking this stuff now, and getting told what’s not good enough about me. He thinks that I’m the problem and not seeing things clearly, but he needs to understand that the things he say to me and the way he acts is annoying. And it’s more annoying that he can’t take it and can’t take blame for his own ways.

    1. Hi Kris!

      Ok so you’re pinching his little heart with your crab claws. I get it. No, Pisces men are not good with what they feel is criticism in any form. The way to get to him best is by sort of learning how to better communicate with him. Instead of saying “you piss me off because you did this”, you can say “alright so remember when this happened? It really bothered me because I felt….”. Can you see the difference. One is accusatory and the other is just you sharing your feelings. Give it a shot!

    1. Hi g0thicc!

      That weirdness you feel is your gut telling you that this guy isn’t the right one for you. If he truly cared for you and wanted to be with you, he would do exactly that. Pisces men start to flake out when they aren’t really into it or they find something about you they don’t feel works for their life. He decides you’re not the one or maybe not the one so he backs off to go about his business. If you would like more information about Pisces man, check out my book “Pisces Man Secrets”.

  5. I dated my Pisces ex for 6 months. We met online and had mutual feelings and started dating right off the back. One month after we met, he invited me to meet his parents. I didn’t feel like going because it felt too fast. He had asked me several times and I decided to take a leap of faith and went with it. We both work long hours and sometimes we wouldn’t spend too much time together during the week. He used to FaceTime me everyday after work. I wouldn’t say we had super strong connection but we both really comfortable having each other as company. I’m a Sagittarius women who is super easy to please and I don’t always demand much. He plans dinners and our meet up around his schedules and I always try to accomandate without complaining. One day he went on business trip and had busy work week, I hadn’t seen him for two weeks. He called off our plan to meet and said I wasn’t planning on to see you after he got back. I got really upset because I had missed him and work was so stressful I just wanted a hug from him. I went to see him and started sobbing because he didn’t feel like seeing me after two weeks. He just sat there staring at me like i’m crazy. He said he doesn’t know where my emotions are coming from and I’m making him uncomfortable because I was crying. I got upset and left his house. A week later, I texted him, no response. Two weeks later, not another word. I even begged him to talk to me, nothing. So I broke it off with him over text. What else am I suppose to do? I couldn’t figure out what I had done to him to give me the silent treatment. I went to him house wanted an answer. For 20 mins I sat there, he said I’m sorry. One week before our arguement, he told me he appreciated me the most, a week later i’ve never heard another word from
    Him. I’m heartbroken for being treated like this. And I don’t even know why.

    1. HI Anna!

      I don’t think he was giving you the silent treatment on purpose but I’m also not saying he was right to do what he did either. However, when you get really upset with him you need to speak to him in a way that won’t make him feel like a horrible turd. Saying something like “I believed that you would come see me and because it didn’t happen, I felt really sad and hurt”. That sounds less accusatory. It lets him understand why you did what you did without pointing fingers. If you would like more information about Pisces man, check out my book “Pisces Man Secrets”.
